2 medium sweet potatoes (each about 5 inches long x 2 inches wide)
2/3 cup frozen Market Day broccoli, thawed, chopped
1/2 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon butter
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste


  1. Cook the potatoes: Wash the potatoes and use a fork to poke holes in several spots on all sides of the potatoes (this helps let steam out while they cook). Place the potatoes on a microwave-safe plate, cover with a wet paper towel, and cook in 2 1/2 minute intervals, checking the potatoes at every interval by piercing them with a fork. The potatoes are done when you can easily pierce a fork to the center of the potato. They should be done 5-7 minutes.
  2. Let cool for a few minutes, then carefully cut each potato in half (they will be hot, be careful!). Using a pot holder or small towel to hold each potato half. Use a spoon to scoop out about 3/4 of the potato flesh from each half.
  3. Use a fork or potato masher to mash the potatoes. Add the butter, garlic powder, salt, pepper, broccoli, and cheese to the potatoes and mix well to combine all the ingredients.
  4. Scoop the potato mixture back into each of the potato halves.
  5. To finish cooking the potatoes, put them back in the microwave for about 1-2 minutes, or bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes, until the cheese is melted. Enjoy!
